Description by OLDIES.com:

Repressed desires, sultry women, sweltering weather and a handsome new stranger in town...this is playwright Tennessee Williams at his very best. Depression-era Dodson, Mississippi, is particularly devastated with the arrival of Owen Legate (Robert Redford), a railroad official with a pocketful of pink slips for the rail yard employees. Natalie Wood is captivating as Alva Starr, the coquettish town flirt with plenty of big plans but nowhere to go...until Legate appears on her doorstep. Their ensuing affair enrages Alva's distant, uncaring mother (Kate Reid) - and ignites a town's revenge. Masterfully directed by Sydney Pollack (The Way We Were, Out Of Africa, The Firm) and co-written for the screen by Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather trilogy), This Property Is Condemned sizzles with unbridled passion and fiery emotion.

Product Description:

Sydney Pollack directs this steamy melodrama co-scripted by Francis Ford Coppola from a play by Southern Gothic maestro Tennessee Williams. Robert Redford stars as Owen Legate, a handsome railroad official who comes to Depression-era Dodson, Mississippi, to shut down the local rail yard and lay off its already struggling employees. When Legate begins a passionate affair with town flirt Alva Starr (Natalie Wood)--a small town girl with big dreams of escaping her dead-end surroundings--the romance angers Alva's domineering mother (Kate Reid) and ignites the town's economic resentments, provoking an act of revenge against the lovers.
